locked Re: Updated Firefox to version 89, can no longer use w/NVDA

I’m using Windows 7 and NVDA beta 2021.1beta1.  I updated and I can browse properly.  When I restarted Firefox, I got this message:
Say hello to a new Firefox
Designed to get you where you want to go, faster
Streamlined toolbar and menus
Prioritize the important things so you find what you need.
Modern tabs
Neatly contain information, supporting focus and flexible movement.
Fresh icons and clearer messages
Help you find your way with a lighter touch.
 
It appears to me that sometimes when I press alt, menus don’t open properly.  but if I fool around, press escape, perhaps tab then press alt again, the menus come up properly.  I haven’t played with this enough to know if it is a problem or a quirk I experienced and if it is a problem, if I have to fool around more than one time to make the menus come up properly.
 
You may want to try firefox Portable and see what happens.

Subject: [nvda] Updated Firefox to version 89, can no longer use w/NVDA
 
Subject says it all, really. Everything just says "unknown" when trying to use Firefox version 89 using Windows 10. Microsoft Windows
Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.985).

Yes, addons of both NVDA & Firefox are now disabled, & I have refreshed Firefox. Yes, I can provide a log for interested parties. Yes, I have tried running comm registration tool. There is text on the screen, Seeing AI sees it, but NVDA does not recognize it, nor does narrator.

I'm hosed.
